This morning was filled with shuttling children and running errands, and because it's so nice, all the van windows were open. Sitting at a stop sign I smelled lilacs, and they were heavenly. I quickly looked around for the lilac bush, but I couldn't spot it. Over an hour later I was back in the neighborhood, picking up my girls, and I made sure to go the same way so I could enjoy those lilacs. I never did spot the fragrant bushes, but I decided I want to be just like them.
As people come in contact with me, or even just pass through my neighborhood, I want them to smell the sweet fragrance of Jesus in my life. I want them to choose to pass my way again, simply to savor that fragrance, even if they don't know the understand the source.
Lord, I want to be a fragrant aroma to You, sweet and pleasing and acceptable to You. I pray the aroma of my life would draw others to You, the source of everything.
"But thanks be to God, who always leads us in His triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing." 2 Corinthians 2:14-15 (NAS)
